Synopsis: Instead of white students fleeing academically weak school districts dominated by disadvantaged blacks and hispanics, in California white students are fleeing overly strong school districts dominated by Asians.

The article: The New White Flight (the original WSJ's version is not available without a subscription, but here's its google cache)

Yes, we are all for the rigorous soviet-math-school-type training. And academic pressure from both curriculum AND the peers is a sure way to get it.
Irvine's schools are on par with the ones described in the article (in the nation's top ###), and - guess what - mostly attended by chinese kids. The first week in kindergarten (!), Sonya brought an eye-popping stack of homework. It was impressive even for us, soviet-math-school parents. I just wish she'll have time for "social studies" too. Like music. Like dancing. Like reading good books.

So we are concerned. But we are not fleeing. :-)
